Travel the globe to meet nine unforgettable girls-striving beyond circumstance, pushing past limits. Their dreams, their voices, their incredible stories are captured in a film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. Girls featured include Ruksana, an Indian pavement-dweller whose father sacrifices his own basic needs for his daughter’s dreams; Sokha, an orphan who rises from a life in a Cambodian landfill to become a star student and accomplished dancer; and Suma, who writes songs to help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to liberate others. More than a film, “GIRL RISING” is the heart of a movement that is spreading around the world promoting this powerful truth: Educating girls in the developing world can transform families, communities, entire countries and break the cycle of poverty in just one generation.

Taikoza was formed in 1995 by Marco Lienhard in New York City in collaboration with other professional Taiko players. The Taiko is a large, barrel-like drum that can fill the air with the sounds of rolling thunder. Drawing from Japan’s rich tradition of music and performance, Taikoza has created a new sound using a variety of instruments. In addition to drums of assorted sizes, Taikoza incorporates also the shakuhachi, the fue (both bamboo flutes) and the Koto (a 13 string instrument) to create new dimension and a powerful impact on the audience. Taikoza uses drums that are 3 feet in diameter and weigh up to 170 lbs. The largest is a 6 foot drum that is 4 ½ ‘diameter. Their love for the Taiko art form transcends national boundaries, bringing new energy to this ancestral form. Taikoza has performed in Europe, Asia and have extensively toured North America.

On August 7, 1974, a 24-year-old French high-wire artist named Philippe Petit committed one of the most astonishing performance stunts of the late 20th century: he strung a thin cable in between the two towers of the World Trade Center and not only walked across, from one building to another, but did a nerve-wracking series of knee-bends and acrobatic movements on the cable, some 1,350 feet above the ground, before turning himself in. This occurred to the consternation and chagrin of Port Authority policemen, who immediately arrested Petit for the act — prompting many to dub Petit’s stunt “the artistic crime of the century.” James Marsh’s documentary Man on Wire revisits and recounts this chain of events some 34 years after they occurred.
